Video: Typing Test – Which Microsoft Surface keyboard is the best? Touch vs Type

The result was very clear. I had much more experience with the Touch that came with the Surface, although I felt the Type was easier to use. Keep reading to find out the winner.

Although I knew this meant extra work for my weekends, I was excited because I was finally able to use Edmodo, which is like Facebook but for students and teachers.

Below you will see my “Asia and Australia” assignment and some parts were really hard! The bit I really liked was discovering how to use Google Maps. You can create your own personal map with pins on different places. Continue reading
